Abstract Stream incision, faulting, thermochronologic, and geobarometric data suggest that Sierra Nevada topography is a consequence of two periods of uplift. Stream incision of up to 1 km has occurred since ∼5 Ma. Maximum Eocene‐Miocene incision was 150 m. Uplift of the Sierra Nevada, westward tilting, stream incision, and east‐down normal and dextral faulting along the present eastern escarpment of the range began at ∼5 Ma. Estimates of Late Cenozoic crestal rock uplift for different areas in… CONTINUE READING
